Today, Nintendo released a new video for its upcoming third person shooter Splatoon 2. This trailer, titled “Answer the Call to Battle”, serves as a 30 second TV spot for the game that you will most likely see on your television in the weeks leading up to release.

The commercial is fairly straightforward and shows off the functionality of the Switch as we get a look at Splatoon 2 being played in both handheld and docked modes. We also get a look at a competitive match of Splatoon 2 being played between two teams, similar to the original reveal trailer for the Switch.

One other quick thing that some fans may spot on this new video is the recently announced Splatoon 2 Pro Controller that one of the players is holding. Nintendo revealed this controller a few weeks back and for the most part, it is the same as the standard Pro Controller outside of its pink and green grips and some splattered ink spots across the face. This new controller is scheduled to release on July 21 alongside Splatoon 2 and will retail for $69.99 — same as a normal Pro Controller.

If you want to check out today’s new trailer for yourself, then you can find it at the bottom of this page. Splatoon 2 is releasing in just a few weeks on July 21 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
